Karaoke for iPhone
Karaoke is a beloved pastime for many. Something about perpetually embarrassing ourselves in front of our friends while singing to our favorite tunes is endearing. You won't come across many people that don't enjoy at least watching a good karaoke session take place, but most of us will join in the fun and perform (despite our complete and utter lack of vocal skill). In the past, for karaoke fun at home you had to buy a bulky karaoke machine and endless specially made CD's. Not anymore. You can find the same technology for your iPhone and have it with you everywhere you go. A karaoke party can break out at any moment with the best karaoke apps for iPhone. Browse through a roundup of 5 top karaoke iPhone apps.

1. Karaoke Anywhere Lite
Karaoke Anywhere was designed for karaoke enthusiasts. It is packed with features and has the most comprehensive library of songs to download. With more than 40,000 tracks to choose from on the Karaoke Anywhere Song Store, you won't run out of new songs to sing. The app does come with one free track to get your library started. If that wasn't enough, you can import your existing MP3+G files into the app using Wi-Fi. Trying to improve your karaoke skills? Record your performances to playback later. The excellent interface and extensive song library makes Karaoke Anywhere the best karaoke app for iPhone.

iKaraoke is a great iPhone karaoke app if you currently have your own .kar song files. The app allows you to import your existing files and use them in iKaraoke. Choose to sing from two modes: Personal and Stage. Personal Mode plays sound through the iPhone speakers and is ideal when you will be singing by yourself. Stage Mode disables the iPhone speakers to avoid feedback; the iPhone must be hooked up to a stereo to play the sound in this mode. iKaraoke converts iPhone into a mini karaoke machine that is simple to hook up and easy to use.
Download iKaraoke for $5.99 from iTunes.

5. iSing Karaoke Locator for iPhone
Not your typical karaoke app for iPhone, iSing Karaoke Locator finds local karaoke locations for you to go to using iPhone's GPS. You are able to search by your current location, zip code or day that you plan to go out. The app features over 2,000 venues in more than 300 cities. One drawback of the app is that it isn't an all-inclusive list, some venues that have karaoke may not make it to the list. If you live in or near a major city, it is great for giving you new ideas of karaoke venues that you may not have otherwise known about.
